Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations – Fun Walk

During June we will be participating in the Sponsored Virtual Fun Walk, organised by Basildon, Billericay & Wickford Council for Voluntary Services on behalf of the Fun Walk Trust.  As well as the money raised from sponsorship we also receive money from a bonus pot of money donated by local businesses, given out pro rata ​based on the amount we raise.  Riders, carriage drivers and volunteers can take part in their usual weekly session or during Endurance Week at the end of June.  Friends and family can also take part virtually too.  Please email info@barrowfarmrda.org.uk for a sponsorship form.  Forms will also be available in the end room at Barrow Farm.
